Date and Time - Tuesday, June 21 @ 5:00 pm

Location - North Landing, Lake Washington

We will meet at the landing by 5:00 pm and plan to start fishing by 5:30 pm. A "big fish" contest will be in place along with a raffle for various door prizes. Following fishing, we will do a "bring your own grill goodies" at the landing. If anyone has a grill to bring, please do so and then whatever you like to eat and drink.

More details will follow on fliers that will be posted soon in area baitshops.

Look forward to a wonderful turn-out!

Darn softball, who talked me into that anways. All it does is take time away from fishing. Worst part, it's co-ed, and I could have left the wife to participate independantly and have myself an independant fishing night at the same time.

Who knows, I may just prioritize.

I'd like to be there too, but I don't think it would work out during the work week.

Have fun and save a few for me! smile.gif

Otter, I noticed that you didn't post this get together on the "get together for f.m.ers forum"...maybe you should post it there also... Anyhow, count me in and if there are any non boat owners that would like to fish I can take a couple people/pets/wives/children with me.. boat fishes four comfortably, and will have only one other with me...

I do require anyone fishing with me to catch smaller fish than "eye" do and furnish me with as much of there knowledge as possible... smile.gif

Dates with attractive (female) family members and friends ('preferably' not their wives as to give themselves more time to fish) are always appreciated in exchange for use of the boat...pending they lie (in my favor) about what a great guy I am... Hee-Hee!!

Hope to see lots of you guys there!

I work road construction so I will probably be working late. I do drive through Madison Lake on my way home, so I will try to remember to do a drive through and see if you guys are grilling yet! grin.gif It would be nice to meet some of you guys. I have a couple of FM decals I plan on putting on my boat and fish house. Should be interesting to see how many people I meet with them on. I have asked a few people fishing if they were FM'ers and they had a look on their face like I called them MF'ers....lol. grin.gif

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!
